I am very content in my own home but I wish I could tell you that I woke up here this morning, in a white bedroom with a view somewhere in France. sigh I wouldn't mind being somewhere on vacation in the Provence, Normandy or Corsica. These are the places that have a little hold of me now, and places in Spain and Greece too.
Who am I kidding? I want to travel everywhere!
Did you enjoy a good weekend? I read, I watched Sense & Sensibility (1995) for the 50th time or so, and I had a productive weekend in the kitchen and will share with you a crumble recipe this week. Here's a hint: rhubarb & strawberries. Then there was a moment of horror in the kitchen as well, when we all took that much anticipated first bite of a French chocolate cake to find out that the whipped cream had gone bad. It was awful. I didn't realise there was something wrong with it when whipping it, as I had fallen into a trance because of the smell from the freshly baked cake. I'll make it up to us on my birthday.
I hope your week is starting well. I'm enjoying the luxury of having to do absolutely nothing. Basically, I'm just waiting for the postman to ring the bell and bring me my new books.
